  The Sheiner Rowland Advanced Course in PKPD Sils Maria 2016

  Sunday April 3 through Friday April 8

        An advanced course presenting aspects and applications of
        pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and kinetic/dynamic data
        analysis in the medical and pharmaceutical sciences.

*For whom intended:*
The Course is designed for those who have a good working knowledge of
basic concepts in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and data analysis
and who now wish to extend their knowledge further. Emphasis will be
placed on relating pharmacokinetics to underlying physiological
processes and to pharmacodynamics, and on the analysis and modelling of
pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data.

*Course content: *
The mornings will be devoted to lectures; the late afternoons to
small-group workshops led by experienced tutors, in which participants
will solve practical problems and develop facility with the techniques
and approaches discussed in the lectures. The participants are
encouraged to raise questions from their experience for discussion: time
is specifically reserved for informal consultations.

*Course manual: *
A course manual, comprising lecture outlines, derivations, problem sets
with answers, and additional reading material will be provided in an
electronic format.

This is not a computer modelling training course. There are no computer
exercises. However, participants should come with a scientific hand
calculator or notebook computer.
